If you couldn’t tell, we’re kind of loving the route renaissance at Tampa International Airport. Even as the airport undergoes massive renovations, the aviation gurus at TPA continue to extend and add service to some of the most in-demand travel and tech destinations in the world.
Transat launches sun and sand routes
The latest announcement revealed nonstop seasonal service to both Toronto and Montreal via Transat. Seasonal service begins on February 18, 2018. “Sun vacations are popular with Canadians every year, which is why Air Transat is thrilled to offer two new destinations this year to quench their wanderlust,” said Annick Guérard, president and general manager of Transat Tours Canada in a statement.
First, we’ll be offering flights to Tampa, a city that is already well-known among Canadian travellers. Tampa boasts lots of great restaurants, not to mention outdoor activities.
Economy class tickets start at $129.28, premier club tickets start at $215.28. You can reserve your seats for next year now on Transat’s website.
Toronto is one of the largest cities in North America
For Canadian travelers, these flights offer the opportunity to escape the harsh winter and bask in the Florida sunshine. For Tampa travelers, these routes provide curious residents the chance to explore the bustling metropolis of Toronto, and cycle through the active streets of Montreal.
With a little under 2.8 million residents, Toronto is one of the largest cities in North America. Want to know what to see and do during your visit? The New York Times recently enjoyed a weekend trip and highlighted the must see markets, bars, museums and shops.
This announcement follows TPA’s recent launch of nonstop flights to San Francisco with United Airlines. The airport’s also announced nonstop service to Salt Lake City, which will launch shortly after their new international nonstop flights to Reykjavik, Iceland (September 2017) aboard Icelandair.
